OK we all know that the online combat on Battlefeild 2 is great and all. But after reading the questions about the game on this site, I can't help but wonder why most of you are not even past a 2nd and 1st LT. I've played this game for about a month (not strait) and I'm already a Major. Some of you have a lot to learn about this game. Trust me, I thought I was the best when I played online against leutenants and captains, but as soon as I started playing against higher ranks they creamed me. First of all metals: to get metals you have do certain things just like on campaign mode. Ex. One of the metals is to get 4 kills using a sniper rifle in one clip in one life (sniper clips have 5 rounds). It's pretty much an easy metal to get if your a good shot. Now to rank up online you have to have three things: Points - kills/flag captures, Metals, and PPH. PPH stands for points per hour, it's how many points you accumulate within an hour's worth of online gameplay. The higher your score in single, individual online game sessions, the more likely your PPH will sky-rocket. The ultimate way to get props online is to achieve the rank of 5-Star General. However, unless you can get all metals (about 16 I think), like a total score of 38000, and a PPH of over 100, well you get the picture. Oh and by the way, there is no cheats section in the setup of Battlefeild 2. The only cheat in the game is all weapons which goes something like this: During gameplay press and hold R2 and L2 then press right, right, down, up, left, left.
